Sunday School

“The mission of the Christian Education ministry through its classes, programs, and activities is to help people of all ages know, love, and serve God on an increasingly consistent and obedient basis”.

Children and Youth

All volunteers in children and youth ministries of the church have been screened and background checked.

Nursery
Available during the worship service, Sunday School, and for other church activities. The nursery facilities are intended for children up to age four. We have both a Quiet Nursery where mothers can nurse and rock their infants and a Children’s Nursery for supervised play time and instruction. During Sunday School, there is also a class for Toddlers (ages 2 & 3).

Sunday School
Provides a supportive and caring environment where children are discipled and equipped to be followers of Jesus Christ. We use a Reformed Sunday School curriculum that disciples children by rooting them firmly in God’s Word. For older children and youth, the curriculum deepens and broadens students’ knowledge and understanding of God’s Word. Classes are provided as follows:

  • Age 3
  • Ages 4 – K
  • Grades 1-3
  • Grades 4-5
  • Grades 6-8
  • Grades 9-12

Communicants Class
Communicants Class is provided for children who are ready to make a public profession of faith. Students receive instruction in the Gospel, the Reformed faith, how the local church is governed and the Sacraments.

Adults

Each quarter we offer different adult Sunday School electives. The educational offerings are designed to teach spiritually-sound, culturally-relevant, and practical Christian principles important for both individuals and those in families as they grow in conformity to the image of Christ. Additionally, we offer adult electives in the areas of Christian Living and Doctrine often based on books or video series of both classic and contemporary Reformed Christian writers, pastors, and theologians. The classes are taught by our pastors, ruling elders, or members carefully selected for teaching adult classes.

“Coffee Talk”                                                                    

Have a cup of coffee/tea/cocoa, and talk about questions brought up by the sermon or living the Christian life, etc. This class will offer an informal opportunity for learning, discussion, conversation and discipleship.

                                                                     

Proverbs                

We’ll spend 12 weeks exploring the content, structure, and theology of the various collections of saying in Proverbs. The book is basically broken down into 7 collections of wisdom literature. Our attempt will be to study these various collections of sayings in order to flesh out the wisdom of Proverbs. Essentially, Proverbs is all about what it is to know God, ourselves, the world, and what is to walk in “the fear of the Lord” on the path of righteousness.

Christ Centered Worship

We have been created to worship our great and mighty God. In this class we will examine the historical traditions of worship liturgy from the Reformation, elements of worship, examples of worship in Scripture and have a dialogue about worship at Center Grove – how can we grow in our adoration, praise and knowledge of God in Gospel worship? We will use Bryan Chapell’s book, Christ Centered Worship as a guide to our examination of worship.
